Corona infection despite vaccination: symptoms of vaccination breakthrough

The more people in Germany are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, the greater the number of vaccine discoveries. Since vaccines are very effective, but do not protect 100% from infection with the corona virus, this is not surprising, but statistically completely normal. Fortunately, corona vaccination protects against a severe course in most cases, which is why vaccinated infected people have a significantly lower risk than unvaccinated infected people. For instance vaccines prevent at least 94 percent of hospital admissions. According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the likelihood of a corona infection in vaccinated people is “low, but not zero”. Vaccine protection also slowly declines after a few months, which is why all adults are currently recommended to have a booster vaccination after 6 months. But how do you, as a vaccinated person, know if you are infected? The following symptoms are typical of a vaccination breakthrough.

Corona infection despite vaccination: symptoms of vaccination breakthrough

In one study, a team of researchers from King’s College London analyzed data from more than 1.1 million people who were vaccinated between last December and May of this year. The symptoms of those who tested positive for the virus after the first or second corona vaccination were examined. Investigations have shown this mainly five of the typical symptoms, which occur in unvaccinated people when infected with the coronavirus, have also occurred in vaccinated people. These include:

  • Rhinorrhea
  • Headache,
  • Sneeze,
  • Sore throat,
  • Cough.

The increase in sneezing is particularly typical of vaccine findings. However, the duration and severity of symptoms are less pronounced in vaccinated than in unvaccinated, and asymptomatic courses are significantly more common.

People who have been vaccinated should also be tested for symptoms

However, scientists have also warned that both increased sneezing and shortness of breath can occur with other diseases as well. Enlarged lymph nodes also do not necessarily indicate a corona infection, as they are generally a typical sign of an infection. However, people who suspect they are infected based on these symptoms should be tested. However, scientists draw the conclusion that people are vaccinated with an infection in most cases no symptoms show and, if so, in a milder form than unvaccinated people.
